Kelley Paul attacks media over coverage of husband Rand’s ‘neighborly dispute’

Published

on

Kelley Paul, wife of Sen. Randal H. “Rand” Paul (R.-Ky.), penned an op-ed which was published by CNN on Nov. 22, dispelling rumors that the early November attack on the senator was due to a long-standing “neighborly dispute.”

“The only ‘dispute’ existed solely in the attacker’s troubled mind, until, on a beautiful autumn day, he ran down the hill on our property and slammed his body into Rand’s lower back as he stood facing away, wearing noise-canceling headphones to protect his ears from the lawnmower,” wrote the senator’s wife.

“This was not a ‘scuffle’ a ‘fight’ or an ‘altercation,’ as many in the media falsely describe it. It was a deliberate, blindside attack,” she wrote.

The Kentucky senator suffered six broken ribs, three displaced, a pleural effusion, and pneumonia. Since the attack, he has continuously experienced long and painful coughing fits and difficulty breathing. This has not stopped Paul, who returned to work on Capitol Hill shortly after the attack.

Big League Politics reported on Nov. 9 that Paul’s senior advisor denied any longstanding dispute between Paula and his hard leftist neighbor Dr. Rene Boucher, and asserted that Paul had not spoken with Boucher in many years.

The senator’s wife said it was appalling that the mainstream media ran with the bad neighbor narrative, despite all evidence to the contrary.

It is incredibly hurtful that some news outlets have victimized Rand a second time as he struggles to recover, delighting in hateful headlines like ‘Not A Perfect Neighbor,’ and concocting theories about an ‘ongoing dispute,’ based on nothing more than speculation from an attention-seeking person with no knowledge of anything to do with us.

She said she was particularly upset by the GQ piece which called the senator a troublesome neighbor because of his libertarian property-rights beliefs, alluding that he might have deserved the attack

The mainstream media has been desperate to avoid any suggestion that the attack may have been politically motivated, although Boucher regularly posts on social media anti-Republican musings like, “May Robert Mueller fry Trump’s gonads.”

The reaction to her husband’s attack has not been all bad, the senator’s wife said.

She said she and her family were grateful for the many prayers and messages of good wishes for the senator’s recovery.

Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments

Hawley is no leader.

Published

on

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.

Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.

There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
